ALL SEASONS – ORGANIZED in FEBRUARY

 

 

             Dear All Seasons Bloggers,
The link this week is open from Sunday Feb. 3 – through Friday Feb. 8 noon, Pacific time!

Thank you dear blog friends for all the interesting places and objects,  uncomfortable or difficult circumstances,  and great experiences  you shared last week with All Seasons! As well as your kind and lovely comments:)

Remember, ONE thumbnail per url  … thanks!

New here? Read “New at All Seasons?” on the Top Right, above the header image.

Hope you already know that your Google+ is going to literally disappear by April?

 

Thought that with a new year ahead, “road” signs may play an important role. The subject is endless, so I chose a few that pertain to my own situation:). If you don’t know what to post this week for All Seasons you are welcome to join me:)

 

If slowly unpacking this new year, the first is to think about
where you are going. So many choices!
A road sign for wineries:
Sutter Creek, Dry town, Middleton, Amador City …
do you know that feeling of …uh right or left?

 

 

 

When driving from North California to South into Los Angeles,
you pass the Grapevine Corridor.
Thought it was worth showing the whole view.

 

 

This sign here is in my opinion much too nice!
It apparently is not effective for the rude and selfish drivers
which make this corridor is more stressful than driving
on a 6 lane free way in Los Angeles,

 

 

 

 

 

                                                    

 

 

 

We often also organize to satisfy our wants and desires.
It may be a little thing, but a mug needs to be for me
the right size and nice logo (no text ).
I recently bought mugs the size of
a soup cup, so I use them for soup
(but they were sold as coffee cups).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For fun – without these labels (signs) one could get seriously lost!
It’s a well known wool provider – Brown Sheep – Encinitas, close to San Diego
Most of the year though it’s too warm for wool in Calif.,
but Noro (a Japanese co.) and others have plenty of cotton
and silk blends with wool.

    Road signs always fascinate me! We have stayed in Sutter Creek, so I suppose we were close to you! And I too, love driving on the Grapevine. One time there were a few snow patches along the road and my husband freaked out because I was looking at them instead of where I was driving!

    1. Funny, Sharon:):) If you come in the neighborhood again, give me a call and we’ll do coffee together, or something else of that nature!

    Jesh – I had to look twice at the winery sign, because I thought maybe you photoshopped the word Convergence onto one of the signs!!! I suppose you can choose right or left, or you could do both!!! Glad to be back at All Seasons this week!

    I’ve also been thinking about buying mugs or ceramic cups for tea. I can’t keep my tea warm long enough and I see so many of those mugs with writing on them, pssh, who needs that while relaxing with a hot cuppa. I like that mound or hill or what do you call it, it’s an interesting formation. I can not even imagine driving there, here in the supposedly polite midwest it’s bad enough. I once had a guy slam on his breaks in front of us because we honked at him to move or something I really don’t remember. He got out of the car and spit on my windshield. At least he didn’t shoot us.

  6. Big-size coffee cups for soup bowls, I like that. Today being a rainy day would be perfect for tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Hmmm, if I start now, we could have tomato soup in a few hours. Jesh, thanks for permission to use your bridge photo from last week as an illustration for a story idea I had. We never know, I just might write it. Happy snowy days!

    I like the opening comment “If slowly unpacking this new year, the first is to think about where you are going”. It’s so obvious and yet not so necessarily common.

    I have fond memories of driving in the USA in several trips a while back, Jesh. I found people friendly and courteous in most of the places we visited, especially the smaller cities and towns. The signs were well maintained and adequate for a driver from abroad (and used to driving on the left hand side of the road!). Sorry to hear that drivers have become worse and people more impolite. I suspect it is a worldwide phenomenon, as it is happening here too…

    You could hardly go wrong with any direction you followed in wine country! Every destination lead to a fun destination! …. I never have understood what a safety corridor is … are we not supposed to drive safely everywhere on every road?

  12. I love those signs you sometimes find with directions and distances to all sorts of places. But sometimes there are “signs” to that lead us to the next “destination” in our life – we just have to see them.

    I know that corridor well. So many memories. Well, we didn’t get any snow here in Georgia -false alarm. I am not complaining though. It is supposed to be 70 for the most part of the week. Have a great week!

  14. I loved that picture of the landscape surrounding the Grapevine Corridor. This kind of images and movies of America once made me dream about traveling the USA northeast to southwest. But that was in my younger years … 😉

    WE really enjoyed our drives around that part of California. The wine was good too.

    That is a beautiful drive between Los Angeles and points north. However, when I last drove it many years ago it rained for the first time in weeks or months and the road was extremely slippery because of the build-up of oil and grime. Although not driving very fast, the car slid across the road. Luckily there was no oncoming traffic. Needless to say, the rest of my drive was very slow and cautious! The wool shards remind me of the worst job I ever had in my life– spinning tread on huge noisy machines from 11 PM to 7 AM after I attended night classes.

    I like those wine signposts! And I’m picky about mugs too, a large one first thing in the morning but smaller and more delicate later in the day. Fussy!
    And for this week’s All Seasons I’ve gone Dutch! https://travelwithintent.com/2019/02/03/amsterdam-queen-wilhelmina-royalty-rides-in-horse/
